Intro


Created by Rob Thomas, the comedy show Cupid (1998) was voted as the fourth show on the list of shows that should have never been canceled.

This is the story of a man (Trevor Hale) who claims to be Cupid, the God of Love, sent to Earth as a punishment. To earn his place back on Mount Olympus, he must reunite a hundred couples without the use of magic. He has been stripped of his powers and has become a normal human being for the length of his stay among us.

Because of his claims, Trevor is thought to be delusional and placed under psychiatric study. He must attend Claire's therapy groups on a regular basis, where he usually likes to interfere and contradict her.

Although the show is based on a fantasy premise, it is mostly an excuse. There have been no proofs so far that Trevor really is Cupid and for all we know, he really could be just another nutcase. Yet, his ability to bring couples together, his great knowledge of Greek mythology and many other elements can only make one wonder.

Opening Theme Song:
"Human" written by Shelly Peiken & Mark McEntee, performed by The Pretenders.

The strength of the show lies in its two leads, Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshall, who have created very likeable characters, with a great chemistry working between them.

Despite debuting on the weak Saturday night line-up on ABC, on the even weaker 10pm spot, Cupid managed to go to another night, but unfortunately ABC placed it on the most competitive hour of the week: Thursdays at 9pm. ABC didn't pick up Cupid and it was cancelled, but E! elected it as being the #4 show that should never have been cancelled
